Effect mechanism of mixing on improving conductivity of asphalt solar collector

Asphalt solar collector (ASC) is a conductive asphalt concrete and an eco-friendly method to de-ice roadways. This study examined if the addition of conductive fillers and various mixing parameters could improve the thermal conductivity and energy efficiency of ASC. A thermal conductivity system measured the thermal conductivity of the concrete samples using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that thermal conductivity was mostly improved by higher asphalt temperatures, ...

Thermal conductivity models for single and multiple filler carbon/liquid crystal polymer composites 

Adding conductive fillers to polymer resins improves the thermal conductivity of the polymers. In this study, Thermocarb TC-300 synthetic graphite and Fortafil 243 carbon fiber were added to Vectra A950RX liquid crystal polymer (LCP) to produce anisotropic single and multiple filler composites. A Thermal Constants Analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the composites using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. The formulations that contained Thermocarb fillers had higher in- and ...
